Energy Catalyst Virtual Brokerage
Join the virtual brokerage to find partners for your Innovate UK Energy Catalyst Round 8 application.
Throughout June, this website will host a series of webinars and 1:1 virtual meetings to discuss project opportunities and facilitate introductions between organisations to help provide clean, affordable and secure energy in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia or both.
Energy Catalyst Round 8 looks to open Summer 2020 with an estimated £20m due to be available to support businesses to develop highly innovative, sustainable energy technologies and business models, which are accelerating the clean energy transition in developing and emerging economies. A particular focus is on addressing the clean energy access challenge in Sub-Saharan Africa and South/South East Asia.
Energy Catalyst is open to both UK and international participants, please review the page on Eligibility for further details.
The aim of these webinars and the virtual Marketplace is to help organisations gain an understanding of the energy access issues in a particular country and to develop equitable partnerships leading to a collaborative application for Energy Catalyst Round 8.
